To whom it may concern:

I would like to recommend Jane Doe for a position with your organization. Jane has been employed by our company from 2001 to 2006.

During her employment with our company as Office Manager, Jane was responsible for all activities associated with efficient office operations including bookkeeping, collections, purchasing, clerical tasks, and training/supervising three office assistants.

Jane is extremely organized, possesses excellent written and verbal communication skills, and works productively without direct supervision.

I believe Jane Doe would make a valuable asset to any employer and I am happy to happy to recommend her without reservation.

Yours truly,

John Doe
